Holes by Louis Sachar - Descriptive writing SOW - Lesson 5 (similes and metaphors)
I would imagine there would be. There are similes in almost any book you pick. The answer is located in He felt like he was digging his own grave. Just as you have it - similes. All similes are metaphors but not all metaphors are similes.
I like how you found the similes and metaphors in the book holes and telling us the pages. I am from Turkey and this site has really helped me I didn't have the book and our teacher assigend us a project. Also the flag counter was a pretty cool Idea. I love that you put the page numbers in, that made it really easy. I am a human-being living in this world is all you need to know.

This simile clearly illustrates Stanley's uncomfortable situation and his lack of agency. The author creates a claustrophobic atmosphere and a strong sense that the character is trapped against his will, which is certainly the case. He is being shipped off to a hard labor camp for a crime he did not commit. He is being restrained by more than just handcuffs: the justice system is working against him, as is, more importantly for the rest of the novel, his family curse. Stanley isn't truly free because success is impossible for him as long as the Yelnats family is still under Madame Zeroni's curse. The reference to handcuffs is significant as it indicates Stanley's lack of freedom, a vital theme explored in juvenile fiction - especially juvenile fiction that deals with actual imprisonment and incarceration.
